The first card is one that I made for my colleague (and carpool buddy) that has accepted another job within the company and is moving across the country. I used some stamps from the Hero Arts set Yay! - this is an older set but I just picked it up on clearance thinking that it would be perfect for this type of card. I stamped each sentiment "Subway Art Style" to create a one-layer card:
I stamped the first one in a neutral colour scheme but I challenged myself to step outside my colour comfort zone for the second one - this week's ColourQ schemed seemed fun so I went with it:
The MISTI made the multiple cards super easy - I feel like I should have made a few more in some other colour schemes - I can always use this type of card. I will link these cards up to a few challenges:
- Less Is More where the cue is "sentiment" for one layer cards
- ATSAM where they are looking for CAS cards
My next card is also for a colleague who just told me that she is pregnant:
I used a Memory Box die to create the heart mask which I used to sponge the heart in Pumice Stone and stamp the greeting repeatedly within it. The banner was created using the reverse colour scheme: white heat embossing on a Pumice Stone background. I stamped the pickle jar (Unity Stamp) onto another piece of paper and coloured with Copics before fussy cutting. It was popped up on the heart and banner with a little bit of thread. I added the panel to a card base and used a couple of strips of patterned paper along the side. I finished up with some home made glitter dots around the pickle jar. I had a hard time photographing this card - the colours look a little bit different in real life but the camera couldn't seem to pick it up.
I will link this card up to:
- Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where they are looking for a bit of green
- Freshly Made Sketches:
The last card is one that I made for the Ellen Hutson Mix It Up Challenge. This month we are being challenged to create a card using products from the Essentials by Ellen line along with Pretty Pink Posh products. This is my card:
